Were home!

For all those who know and have been concerned, Vance is out of the ICU and doing great! I am so thankful for all the thoughts and prayers over the past couple days! I am hoping that things will soon be back to normal! I am also so thankful to be part of such an amazing church! It was such an awesome thing to see so many people come together and help us out! I know that all the prayers are what made Vance have such a quick recovery! Hopefully we won't have any more hospital trips for a VERY long time! Thank you, thank you!!!!!

Turkey Day!

So this year I was lucky enough to host Thanksgiving at my house! I had several in-laws staying at my house, and all though it was hectic at times, I had a ton of fun spending time with Bens family! This may sound bad, but we had all decided that we didn't want to cook so were so excited about the meal in a box that we ordered from sprouts. We just couldn't wait to get a meal handed to us and only have to worry about eating it! Well, of coarse things don't always go as we want them to! The meal was picked up when we were ready to eat.... but they forgot to tell that it was all completely frozen! (Turkey and all) We felt kind of silly! We just butchered the turkey and stuck it all in the oven or on the stove top. We just got to have a little more bonding time and wait for it all to get cooked! I mad my first blueberry pie! Ben always begs me for them, nut I just never get around to hit! Even though I hate pie, it was a major hit!

Here is Ben frantically trying to prepare a frozen meal
with his mom! (what a good hubby)

Ben and his sister fought the whole time! It was kind of funny!

The kiddy table! I feel like I was just sitting at this table!

Bro Bro with his glasses!

Just trying to give him a little TLC! (too bad he was too
busy watching football to notice)

My Pie!

Me and Jenny! (ben's sis!)

Brogan loves to walk

This video is kind of old, but Brogan has been walking for a little while and I am just now getting around to posting it! Lame... I know! He walks like a penguin! I love life with 2 walking kids! It is so much easier! I will post some better video soon........

Cheap entertainment for all of us!

So Vance loves to go to the park so he can ride his bike down this grassy hill! He rarely makes it down with out crashing really bad, But he always goes back up for more! I think he knows that Mom and Dad are laughing at him and he loves it! Hmmmm... and I wonder why my 2 year old has all ready had stitches in his head TWICE!

He won't ever use the pedals so Ben decided to get on and try to show him how! You can only imagine what a melt down that caused! Vance just doesn't want to share his bike with anyone... not even Dad!

This is Bro Bro's birthday gift from Grammy! He loves it, but the only problem is that Vance loves it too!

The Birthday Boy! ( a million pictures!)

Okay, so yesterday we had a great day at Brogans birthday party! We didn't make it to much of
a production so I was a little worried that it might be lame, But it was perfect. We had so much fun! All the kids had a total blast! Brogan was so dang cute! I seriously can't believe that he is ONE! It is so crazy. I really thought he was going to be so sick from all the sugar he had, but he wasn't. Me on the other hand...... not feeling so well! :) I probably should have laid off the cup cakes! Brogan would NOT stop stuffing his face! It was insane! Even though he won't remember it, I am so happy that Brogan enjoyed it so much!

I LOVE this picture! (good picture taking by Ben... for once!)

He loved all his gifts! He says Thank you to everyone!


He did some damage!

He loves being fed by aunt Heather!

He was ready for his cake!

We figured... what the heck..... lets just give him a whole pizza! (thanks to $5 pizza's at little caesers!)

my cute family! aunt Jami and cousin Valentina!

My star cupcakes were a major hit!~ I was glad because I stayed up all night making them!

Always eating! (before he got destroyed by his cake!)

I am such a pig! we really could not stop eating the cupcakes!

Every one is doing it!

I kept enjoying everyone else's jib jab so much that I decided to finally make some!

Me and Ashley decided to try out the water aerobics at our gym! We had so much fun! It was nice and non-stressful. I totally didn't mind that our teacher was this very very cute OLD lady! (along with everyone else in the class) Even though we felt a little out of place, I am pretty sure we will be going back for more, twisties, lunges and froggie jumps!

Mommy Time!

I love to go out on my balcony and lay by myself and enjoy a little "mommy time". The other day Vance came out and not leave me alone! Ben thought it was funny so he went and grabbed the camera! By the time he came out, I had made peace with the fact that Vancie only want some "cuddle time"! How am I supposed to resist that?

My Lil' Brothas'!

I didn't want to be behind everyone so I figured I should Share my Halloween pictures! Well, Sat was our Ward Trunk or treat and I figured the boys probably should not wear their Gangster outfits, so I put them in some boring costumes that just annoyed the heck out of them. Even though I lost Vance a couple times, we still had a lot of fun. It was a lot easier trunk or treating rather than making Vance walk house to house. As for last night, I finally got to dress my boys how I wanted to! The looked so CUTE! (and funny). We went to Dan and Ashleys and let Vance roam the neighborhood. Everyone loved the costumes. I found magnetic earings at the Icing, and du-rags at Sallys and I pretty much had everything else! For those who don't know, Ben is form Georgia, so Vance just had to wear his Atlanta jersey! He loved it until his head became too itchy from the du rag! I had so much fun just enjoying my boys and getting spend time with friends and family! Oh yah... and Vance Face planted on the tile ! (in case you are wondrering why he has such a fat lip!)


So I said I would NEVER go private but I have decided to due to trying to expand my business. If you would like to be added to read my blog, leave your email as a comment on any post or email me at I hope to do this within the next couple days. thanks!
